. goingre committed and beyond that. similar signals from kuwait, from l syria -- algeria. anything else that anybody wants to do that is up to them and it is a bonus. me get you a little bit of this tells you the story of two heavyweights. thenon-opec elephant in room. you are looking at opec production. you can see how it falls off of the agreement comes into force. when you also see in the tellsop, the histogram the story of u.s. current inventories which remain at the highest seasonal level in three decades. that is the kind of oil in the system that needs to start getting out of the system for oil prices to really rally behind $625 per barrel. manus: he say today is perhaps a little more laissez-faire. what do you expect? is this a show of strength from the core of opec trying to set a roadmap for those nonmembers? i am challenging russia, giving our bit to you. reporter: light muscle flexing. nothing formal is on the agenda but the fact we are here and talking and continuing to follow up with the monitoring committee in terms of building a clear agenda for the way forward in terms
behind them and understood what the challenge that they were contending with in places like syria, iraq, and afghanistan. and the general enforced that earlier today. in fact he invited civilian , control to be exerted to a much greater degree than it is today. there is a very disturbing trend that we had some opportunity today to turn around and to exercise by having a meaningful public hearing process and mark-up which unfortunately is not going to be the case. so again, i think for a lot of us, this is a very awkward and difficult situation because of our high regard for general mattis, but the fact of the matter is, the principle that's involved, a constitutional principle that really goes to the essential dna and fabric of this country is something that we really just cannot overlook and treat as a mere technicality and for that reason, i will oppose this bill. i yield back. >> again, i just want to say i agree with many of the comments the gentleman from connecticut made on the authorization of use of force. it is not within the jurisdiction of this committee however to pass

been the proxy war they are waging in syria to remove assade hillary clinton was quite critical of obama for constraining them. she wanted to escalate that work to at least the cia to oppose a no-fly zone in syria to confront russia. where's trump took the opposite position. he said we have no business in syria, we ought to let russia and assad to go free in killinga isis and whoever else they want to kill. he was a threat to the cia's priority. clinton wanted a much more confrontational approach. whereas trump wanted better relations. i think they viewed trump as a threat to their institutional ability to get there agenda imposed on washington. >> tucker: what is silly about this is you point out, which i would definitely recommend to our viewers, reading this. you recommend some of the ways to oppose trump. but this way is an illegitimate way to oppose a president and in fact a threat to our system. if you can explain what you i meant. >> sure, i mean if you go back six decades whenen dwight eisenhower, no radical oh he, a five-star general, two-term republican president. he had

that's why we have seen the broken up actions against isis and places like syria. >> trump is the commander-in-chief. it doesn't matter ducialt matily he's the top of the chain of command. so whatever the department of defense wants to do rests with one man only. donald trump. ken report cia director potential, mike pompeo. can he change this intelligence agency from within? will there be a big enough shift under him or will he pretty much keep things static. >> it's difficult like most bureaucracies. if you cross it it will leak like crazy against you. so it's always. >> his sense of hugh more was sort of implying. is that the kinds of government we have? >> yes, it is. is it the kind of government we want? no. mike pompeo and mattis are conventional guys. they were expressing conventional republican views on these matters which don't necessarily agree or jibe with donald trump. but donald trump ultimately is going to be the president. kennedy: last word, katherine. >> i think we can hope for a certain amount of neglect by trump of these guys. way heard them saying was pretty mai

journalist theo padnos. from october 2012 to august 2014 he was held hostage in syria by the nusra front, which is allied to al-qaeda. he was beaten, abused, not knowing from day—to—day if he would be shot or spared by his captors. but was he the victim of his own actions? he says the most bitter moment of his captivity was the realisation that it was he himself who was mostly responsible for his ordeal. theo padnos, welcome to hardtalk. thanks very much for having me. why did you decide to go to syria in 2012 to report on the conflict there? you know it was a very dangerous place, it still is. it was certainly dangerous at the time, but i mean, i felt that i could avoid the worst of the dangers. ifelt the real danger to me at the time, i thought, was the regime. i thought they were against western reporters coming in. i didn't have a visa forjournalists and i felt that they were going to come and arrest me. i felt that the resistance, they were going to say, the west is generally on our side, you're a westerner, so we'll show you around. i anticipated a friendly and heartfelt recept

trying to improve on the economy, trying to deal with these major threats overseas from syria and ian and iraq to forth korea. i think that is terribly problematic. something carl said which i do think is chilling. we always talk about how he has been critical of the media. he attacks us. let us take the media out of the equation. let's face it, us in the media are not low. we have a low approval rating amongst people. if he's willing to do it to us, will he do it to others is a big concern. >> if can you do it in ten second. >> just to respond to ari's point. if it becomes an issue where intelligence is always ace accused of being politicized because that information is not welcome. that at real problem. >> it's not welcome. of both full administrations, of both parties. so if you accuse them of partisanship, you go into call into question the very process of intelligence. >> all right. we will have more time. you can blame the speaker and jake for that. thank you very much. they cut into our time. thank you, i appreciate it. >>> just ahead, donald trump takes the oath of office next

completely. and then syria was very risky. boat these operations, as mike pointed out, were using their military, but they actually didn't use their whole military either. they were pretty much economies of force. but i think, yes, of course we need to be stronger. we need to deter the russians and show resolve, which is why cooperating with them on the other hand can be more difficult. >> inskeep: let's talk express setly about russian president vladimir putin and president-elect trump. president-elect trump talked about putin at his news conference yesterday. let's listen to a little bit of that. >> if putin likes donald trump, i consider that an asset, not a liability. because we have a horrible relationship with russia. russia can help us fight isis, which by the way is number one tricky. >> inskeep: i want the add one other thing, ambassador mcfaul, because donald trump sent out a tweet the other day. he said, "having a good relationship with russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. only stupid people or fools would think it was bad." you think it was directed at you? what's wrong
